A look at the Gophers recruits and how they fared this past season:  

Player/team                                           Size             Gms       G-A--Pts.       +/- ratings              

Christian Isackson, S.F., RW             6-0, 184        68          20-32--52      +7

Sam Warning, Cedar Rapids, LW    5-9, 175        64         28-22--50        +16

Seth Ambroz, Omaha, RW                  6-2, 211       59          26-22--48      +2

Travis Boyd, U18 U.S. team, LW       5-10, 176      52          11-21--32      ---

Chris Rial, Kenai River                         6-5, 205     59           14-12--26    -9   

Goalies                                                    W     L   OL           GAA      save pct.

Adam Wilcox, Green Bay                      16    6     1             2.20      .922

Mike Shibrowski, Des Moines             21   16    5             2.59      .912  

Joel Vienneau, Muskegon                    18    21   4             3.62     .892      

Notes: Sam Warning, who signed with the Gophers last month, helped Cedar Rapids set a team record for victories (42) and tie its record for points (90). The RoughRiders won the Anderson Cup, which goes to the USHL team with the most points during the regular season.

Travis Boyd helped the U.S. national team win the IIHF under-18 world championships in Germany last month. He had two goals ans four assists in six games. The U.S. beat Sweden 4-3 in overtime on April 24 in the title game. 

Adam Wilcox is the only Gophers' recruit whose team is still playing in the USHL playoffs. Wilcox is the backup goalie for Green Bay which faces Dubuque for the Clark Cup. Wilcox has not played in any of the Gamblers' playoff games so far.  It appears Wilcox will play another season in the USHL and the Gophers will bring in Mike Shibrowksi who committed to the U of M last month.

Chris Rial of Kenai River, the Gophers' lone NAHL recruit, is from Las Vegas, Nevada.
